The open source alternative to Microsoft Office is now making beta versions available of OpenOffice.org 2.0. I’ve long been a fan of this package and I took the 2.0 beta for a spin recently using it to write the World of Warcraft review I posted the other day and I’m happy to report that it just keeps getting better. I’ve not had a lot of opportunity to play with it yet, but the ability to import Office documents appears to have improved over the already impressive abilities present in the 1.x releases of OpenOffice.org and the whole package feels a lot more solid and familiar to anyone who’s used to Microsoft’s offerings.
It’s pretty much a must-have for Linux users and it makes a great alternative for Windows folks who don’t want to fork out the money for a copy of Office. Check it out.
